2012 Glenfarclas Christmas Edition 2022 Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
A full-term oloroso matured treat from one of our favourite Speyside distilleries.
Although it's not certain when this series started, there have been a number of annual Christmas bottlings from Glenfarclas. Through the 1980s they were cask strength and came with big age statements. More recent bottlings have landed at approximately ten years of age. 2022 marks one of the slightly lower outturns, with 4200 bottles released (previous editions have been closer to 5,500 bottles). All the right ingredients such as 100% maturation in Oloroso Sherry casks and a 46% ABV add up to a quality limited edition that's more than just a label change. Hopefully the Grants have selected some casks to go with the Christmas pudding! Some will stash this away in collections, but we'd like to think most bottles will get opened and shared this December. Whiskyfun's notes below are on the 2010/2022 release, however these editions should show only minor variation. Distilled December 2012 / bottled 2022. Probably a European exclusive, though not confirmed. One shipment only.
Other reviews... [2010 vintage tasted / bottled 2022] Aged in oloroso sherry. Aren't we a bit late once more? I'm noticing that they keep calling themselves 'a Highland'. Colour: full gold. Nose: very similar whisky, this one being just a notch nuttier and with more oranges. Perhaps…. We're extremely close, nonetheless. In cases like this one, the taster must be careful not to swap his/her glasses, or everything's ruined. Mouth: ditto. You would almost believe this was the same batch, but we won't complain, it's excellent young sherried Glenfarclas. Finish: perhaps a little more chocolate and fig jam? Comments: merry Christmas (what?) 86 points - whiskyfun.com
